I know this has been done before but with the use of Bukkit. This all was before the DMCA of Bukkit. Now a days there's little to no option when it comes to modding and adding plugins. I know there's Sponge, but I don't feel like forking plugins or hiring someone to fork plugins just to get some plugins and mods on the same server. As of right now, you can mod servers. But without at least some of optimizations that were in the 1.7 versions of the integration it's not the same. Bare bones minecraft with forge and mods loaded on top of it is just too much for it to handle on a server that could easily handle the integration. My question is, is there or will there ever be a development in a new spigot & forge integration for later versions of Minecraft?
